There's no way former Orange Coast College film student Rick Carter could miss the annual film festival. Carter is to be inducted into the film department's Hall of Fame with four other alums--and he also will have along a copy of the original version of "Horror Brunch," which won the competition two years ago, for screening. Carter, 34, attended OCC in 1985-86 and says he owes a lot to the college film program.
"It allowed me to get hands-on experience, which is something I desperately needed," he said. Carter, a one-time Disneyland employee and self-proclaimed horror-movie addict, is now finishing the final editing of the feature-length version of "Horror Brunch." He describes the film as a horror version of "The Big Chill." It is being produced by Snappy Pattern Productions in Hollywood, he said, with a cast of unknowns.
